Development of RFID-Enabled Tool Management System
Due to the lack of realtime and accurate collection of status and position information of tools, the management of tools in a factory is always not efficient enough. In this paper, the architecture of RFID-enabled tool management system is proposed first, and a tool coding scheme based on EPCgloble is introduced later. RFID middleware for tool management with key features and its components are described afterwards. The system is developed on ASP.NET platform, and experiments show that the new tool management system improves the data collection and automation of tool management.
